For the past 15 years, Susie Burpee has collected notes she has found on the ground.  Love letters, grocery lists, thank you notes, F*CK You! notes, appeals for forgiveness, cries for help, x-rated stuff, school poetry…

With just a few details, paper and words becomes flesh and soul.   The collection seems to breathe as an interconnected social commentary.  Part exhibit, part performance, her latest art project is about consideration. How do we consider the situation of someone we’ve never met?

In her blog post about the show, earlier this week, Susie mused, “What is my reflection, projection, bias, or just wishful thinking?  How do we consider how we consider?”

She’s really excited about this long-in-the-making project.  She also wants you to know that she’s grateful to hub14, dramaturge Cathy Gordon, and for the technical support provided by James Kendal.
